INFERNO, The Fire Spectacular, Lights Up The Stage at Paris Las Vegas

INFERNO, the fire spectacular that has taken Europe and Asia by storm, celebrated its opening night performance at Paris Las Vegas on Thursday, February 8, with a packed house.

Starring critically acclaimed Swedish illusionist Joe Labero and the most exciting fire, pyro and aerial group in the world, The Fuel Girls, INFERNO blends death-defying stunts, jaw-dropping illusions and fire within a gasoline-soaked spectacular, that proves playing with fire can be dangerous, mysterious and also beautiful.

“INFERNO is like nothing The Strip has seen before,” said Kris Russell, co-producer. “Fire brings out something primal in everyone. It’s one element that’s never quite been tamed and this show will push the most talented fire artists in the world to their absolute limits, letting audiences live out their pyromaniac dreams.”

Labero, a four-time Merlin Award winner and “illusionist of the decade”, uses his mind-bending magic to tame nature’s most powerful element through all new mystifying illusions. The Fuel Girls, just off Fall Out Boy’s UK Tour, dazzle with huge fire props including flaming swords, torches and whips, crowns of fire, arena-scale pyro rings, dragon canes, pyro staffs and spinning fire cubes, performing in and around while manipulating the fire itself in death-defying floor and aerial acts.
